Did a lot of little maintenance and cleanup jobs on the exterior. Will give her a bath when we get back home this afternoon.

Checked and added a little water to my two Trojan T-105's. I check them every spring and fall. They are approaching 5 years old and show no signs of age.

Added a new look to the kitchen backsplash.
The wallpaper look just didn't work so I was given a project.
I pulled the window valence and blind down so I could complete the look.
It went well, some cutting and trimming but the back splash looks good and can now be wiped down if anything does get on it. I used a peel and stick tile that we picked up at Lowes. It took 3 packs.

Nice mod to the original faucet in your bathroom.

After that, it's the curtains. Then the upholstery. Next thing y'know, the cabinets are getting refinished.

Just got back from our first dry camp excursion in our new Pinnacle and found out that the batteries do not keep our refrigerator going for more than 5 hours. Looks like I'll be spending some time today looking at remedies other 5ers have posted to see how we can fix this issue. We love to dry camp as we have lots of very beautiful National Forest Campgrounds in our lovely part of the world. We also need to clean about a bazillion bugs off the cap and bathe the rest.

Does your new Pinnacle has a residential refrigerator? The more I hear about them vs Norcold/Dometic, etc. the less I want one. I know my Norcold is more expensive, doesn't cool as well (but plenty good for me), but it will run on a battery and propane for a long time between charges or need to plug in or run the generator. I spend 5 days at a car race every fall and if it wasn't for the grandchildren's need for television, I wouldn't run my generator at all for the entire 5 days.

Yes, we do have a Samsung residential refrigerator. I love it, especially having a Dometic in previous campers. I am confident we will figure out a way to be able to boondock with minimal generator time. We just need to do a bit of research and make some mods.
